Any good places to grab a game in NJ? I’m in Old Bridge so Voorhees is too far away. :)

Anyone ever play at The Game Room (Woodbridge I think)?

What about The Gamer’s Realm in West Windsor?

Well, if you are up for a road trip, Reality's Edge in Arlington has good 40k on Sundays, cool terrain, cool guys, very nice armies. I am a North Jersey guy, so I can't help you much with either of those stores though.

Good luck finding a game in the Garden State!

I used to live in Kearny. I have been in there once. I don't remember how many tables they had. Is it the usual crowded with a dozen young kids? Don't get me wrong I don't know how to play, but a dozen people trying to play on a table or two is not that conducive to learning. Especially when no one knows the rules.

Hey, I work at the game room in new jersey :P . Weird to see us listed lol, anyway we have most of our gaming on Friday evenings and all day Saturday. Due to limited space though, we can usually only get 3 to 4 games going at once. So come early if you want to get a spot in. We're inside Woodbridge Mall, upper level.

A desperate situation, Forced to retaliation. The task ahead a burden, Men will suffer, that's for certain.

With virtue as our beacon Our cause is charged as treason, battle worn and starving,through the hell of war we'll keep marching.

I’ve also been to the game room just never saw anyone play. What size games do people usually play? Are people starting to use 5th rules yet?

When I'm back stateside I'll be at my parents place near the Gamer's Realm. Nice place and they do discounts on decent sized orders.

Hey there. I'm up in Maplewood in Essex County. Maplewood Hobby in Maplewood (duh!) is about 45 minutes north of you. The Only Game In Town in Somerville, NJ is about 45 minutes northwest of you. I belong to a private club up in River Edge called HQ the Club. They're about an hour north of you but it'd totally be worth the trip. You can check out their boards via the link in my signature...

Maplewood is a great place, I've gone there many a friday night (whats up joe?). As for the Game room, we usually have customers who come in and play anywhere from 1000 and up. Lately they've been on an apocalypse spree. We've been using 5th ed for about the last 2 months now. Both places, maplewood and the gameroom are awesome places to play at. Not to many rules lawyers and dicks around, though of course you'll always get a few power gamers at both stores

Can't say much about gaming at The Game Room since I'm mostly just a painter, but their staff has been exceptionally friendly and helpful whenever I come in, and I've been shopping there since the early 90s.

Anyone know the current schedule for Maplewood or Game Room Store?

I'm in Westfield, btw. The nearest place I've found is Scotch Plains on Sundays, although the last time I was there it was just me and an employee :D

When I was in middle school there used to be a group playing at the Y, although I don't know if they are still around.

Jersey Shore Hobbies in Seagirt has a great gaming community. 6 gaming tables, all designed and made by the guys who play there, and they're still adding more. Saturday is the primary day for playing 40k.

I work in summit now. Is that the little shop of comics in Scotch Plains? I drive by all the time. I guess they don't have any open play other than Sundays.

I think since I started this thread I may have played once. Mostly my too busy

I live in Hudson County.

The places I play are Reality's Edge in North Arlingto and Hi-Way Hobby House in Ramsey.

Both places have different atmospheres.

Reality's Edge has a more serious gaming community there.

I'm getting my feet wet after a 5 year hiatus. The Emperor calls!

Looking for games in the Camden, Gloucester, and Burlington County area. I've been to the local GW store in Echelon Village. Great staff, friendly peeps, but I'm looking for a 18+ club with chill mature players.

I'm currently assembling a BA army, and looking to expand to other armies in the future.

Cheers.

I'm originally form Delran (I'm down in DC now though) However, my older brother and some friends still get together for games every once in awhile. Were all in 30's and usually play in either Delran or Cherry Hill. I don't know how often they get together and play 40k when I'm not around but I'll ask. I know they play other games as well, with more frequency, such as Flames of War and Warhammer Historicals.

When I hear back I'll either post or pm you.

Sounds great Masterseth. I appreciate the reply. I'll keep an eye on this post for any updates, or PMs.

Currently living in Marlton, but moving to East Greenwich soon. Travel is no problem.

I am a week and a half away from moving to New Jersey to be with my girl friend. I have a great gaming group here in my town, but that is in Michigan, so I certainly will not be making the Friday night 40k sessions here anymore. I am looking for a good gaming group in NJ, and wondering if anyone here is from there and can recommend some. I will be around the Montclair area, so 20 miles or so outside NYC. I found one out there on a visit called Time Warp Comics, maybe someone here is from their group. Any help from you all would be appreciated

I'm going to move this to the community section, more likely to find people there.

You sound like your in the right area for HQ the Club.
